Click Tasks at the bottom of the web interface to display the tasks that you, other administrators, or PAN‑OS initiated since the last firewall reboot (for example, manual commits or automatic FQDN refreshes). For each task, the Task Manager provides the information and actions described in the table below.
Some columns are hidden by default. To display or hide specific columns, open the drop-down in any column header, select Columns, and select (display) or clear (hide) the column names.
To filter the tasks, enter a text string based on a value in one of the columns and Apply Filter ( ). For example, entering edl will filter the list to display only EDLFetch (fetch external dynamic lists) tasks. To remove filtering, Remove Filter ( ).
